The Chappaqua Volunteer Ambulance Corps and Houlihan Lawrence are hosting a fall community blood drive with the New York Blood Center on Saturday, November 16th from 9:30am-2:00pm at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin Parish Hall located at 191 S Greeley Avenue (next to Bell Middle School).
Approximately 2,000 units of blood need to be collected daily to supply area hospital patients. As our blood supply always needs to be replenished we are encouraging those who can donate to please do so, especially before the holiday season.
Donating blood does not only help the patients who receive the donation directly but their family and friends as well. It’s truly a positive ripple effect of one random act of kindness. To donate you must be at least 16 years of age. 16 year old donors require parental consent on NYBC form. Donors age 76 or over may donate with a note from their physician. Please bring a friend (or two) who can also donate along with valid photo ID.
